Diffusing Tort Law Softly: Insights into the Travels of Italian Tort Law
Journal of European Tort Law (2015)
  • Marta Infantino
Abstract
The paper examines how, where, and why Italian tort law rules have circulated within Europe since the enactment of unified Italy’s first Civil Code in 1865. By tracing the fragmented historical and geographical patterns of diffusion of Italian tort law in the last 150 years, the paper offers itself as a case-study for thinking about legal transplants within and across European cultures.
